KTN's online platform helps you to make the connections you need


The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) has refreshed its online platform to intelligently connect you to relevant events, funding, thought pieces and specialist staff to help your business innovate and grow.

You can discover content using your area of interest, from Energy to transport; from space to health – all major UK economic sectors are covered. Once you have selected your interests, using our intelligent tagging system, we will then display rich and relevant content related to your area, often from surprising sources.

An example might be new satellite technology from the space sector that is applicable in the agri-food sector. KTN-UK.co.uk will help you form these unusual and valuable connections.

All content on the platform has been carefully curated by our team of innovation specialists – not by an automated algorithm – so you can be confident that KTN is connecting you to the most relevant cutting-edge information.


The move also marks a closer alignment with our main funder, Innovate UK , with the website branding making a clear visual link. Knowledge Transfer Network is Innovate UK's innovation network partner, and also works with other funders to provide innovation networking services and fulfil our mission to drive UK growth.

We link new ideas and opportunities with expertise, markets and finance through our network of businesses, universities, funders and investors. From agri-food to autonomous systems and from energy to design, KTN combines expertise in all sectors with the ability to cross boundaries. Connecting with KTN can lead to potential partners, horizon-expanding events and innovation insights relevant to your needs.

Power generation (coal, gas, and biomass) under increasingly stringent emissions regulations

Date: Tuesday 6th December (10.00 – 4.00pm)

Location: Princess Victoria room, Mary Sumner House, Westminster, London

Fees: free of charge

Sponsors: APGTF and CRF    Supporters: UKCCSRC and CCSA


The Workshop will focus on the technical and commercial impacts of increasingly stringent emissions regulations on the operation of power and CHP plants, fuelled by coal, gas, biomass and waste.

The Industrial Emissions Directive IED 2010/75/EU came into force on January 1st 2016 and applies to new and existing plant. In some cases, there are moving targets set by Best Available Technology. Also there are trends in regulations from other countries on NOx, SOx, Hg, and particulates that signal likely future limits. There is also the possibility of plant being fitted with carbon capture and this will have an impact on other emissions and waste streams, and these too must comply with legislation.

Speakers are invited to explain the impact of current and anticipated legislation and share experience on available technologies and performance.
